Want to hear some of Black Fret’s best? Check out Art City Austin this weekend

You’ve probably heard about Black Fret, the local music patron organization that has awarded grants to 20 local acts annually since 2014. Generally their events are members-only affairs. But this weekend brings an opportunity to catch a Black Fret-presented lineup featuring many of its grant recipients as part of Art City Austin.
